Homemade ornament!

I guess this is a month of first for me!

First a give away,
and now my first craft tutorial.

This is a fun photo ornament!
I hope you enjoy!

4x6 photo
ruler or paper cutter
2 paper fasteners
hole punch

Use a special 4x6 photo
(This is mine, of all our footprints in the sand
from the beach this summer -
and an additional heart drawn in the sand
- hoping to add another footprint!)

Cut the photo in 1/2" strips

Add ribbon to on fastener

Use your Hole punch and punch holes in both sides of each photo stip.
Add the fastener to the top and bottom of the strips.

Carefully bend the strips and begin to pull them apart,
rapping them around to form the ornament.

Hang on your tree
and enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

It looks like a fun project! We'll have to give it a try.

PS - we're adding another set of footprints!
